Call for Participation - Women’s lottery leadership programme in Europe 2022-2023


Do you want to learn more about how you can develop yourself as a female leader and increase your self-esteem?

Or are you looking to improve your coaching and leadership skills and share your experience as a mentor?

Back in 2019 EL launched a pilot for the Women's Initiative in Lottery Leadership (WiLL) mentoring programme in Europe. As we received positive feedback, the 2021-2022 Mentoring Programme was then launched in October 2021 and completed successfully.

We are now pleased to announce the next round for mentors and mentees for the period 2022-2023.

”WILL continues to grow, creating a path for talented and passionate women to realise their full potential in the lottery sector. Both mentors and mentees will benefit from this experience and contribute to build an environment that not only accepts diversity, but also celebrates and promotes it.”
